1 MATHEMATICAL REASONING GED 2014 PRESENTERS: AMY VICKERS AND LINDSEY CERMAK

2 WARM UP 1.What does this mean? Interpret this statement in your own words and explain it to everyone at your table. 2.Does this concept connect with any math topics that you currently teach? Which topics?

3 Amy Vickers Teacher GED 2014 PD Grant Coordinator Lindsey Cermak GED Instructor/Coordinator …a program of the Minnesota Literacy Council

4 OBJECTIVES To articulate the content and format of the Mathematical Reasoning module of the 2014 GED test To be able to use a few teaching strategies in your classrooms right away to begin the transition to the new test, including ways to use existing materials To create a personal PD plan related to the Mathematical Reasoning module

5 OUTLINE Activity -Warm Up -Introductions -Objectives -Warm Up Report Out -Assessment Targets Activity -Themes of the Change -Item Samplers -Existing Materials -Wrap Up: Personal PD Plan

6 WARM UP 1.What does this mean? Interpret this statement in your own words and explain it to everyone at your table. 2.Does this concept connect with any math topics that you currently teach? Which topics? Purpose 1: To demonstrate that it is possible to do everything that is on the GED 2014 Mathematical Reasoning module. Purpose 2: To expose everyone to the new content so that teachers will be more prepared to advocate for content knowledge refreshers at a later date.

7 What are the new content and format of the 2014 GED test? What do I need to know about the GED 2014 test content and format? How do I weave the concepts and content of the GED 2014 test into my instruction? Themes of Change Sample problems Apply to current classroom using existing materials

8 What are the new content and format of the 2014 GED test? What do I need to know about the GED 2014 test content and format? How do I weave the concepts and content of the GED 2014 test into my instruction? Themes of Change Sample problems Apply to current classroom using existing materials

9 COMPARE AND CONTRAST Personally…do 2002 PLUS… Reframing what we are ALREADY doing at EACH level Pizza model 10 minutes What is New on the 2014 GED test? Q.1.d Identify absolute value of a rational number as its distance from 0 on the number line and determine the distance between two rational numbers on the number line, including using the absolute value of their difference Q.2.d Determine when a numerical expression is undefined A.1.f Factor polynomial expressions A.3.a Solve linear inequalities in one variable with rational number coefficients A.3.b Identify or graph the solution to a one variable linear inequality on a number line A.3.c Solve real-world problems involving inequalities A.3.d Write linear inequalities in one variable to represent context A.7.b Represent or identify a function in a table or graph as having exactly one output (one element in the range) for each input (each element in the domain).

10 COMPARE AND CONTRAST Personally, we recommend just reframing what we are already doing at each level

11 SOME NEW TOOLS On screen calculator: TI 30XS Calculator reference sheet Formula sheet Personal dry erase boards

12 What are the new content and format of the 2014 GED test? What do I need to know about the GED 2014 test content and format? How do I weave the concepts and content of the GED 2014 test into my instruction? Themes of Change Sample problems Apply to current classroom using existing materials

13 ASSESSMENT TARGET ACTIVITY Directions: Look at the 15 assessment targets of the 2014 GED Mathematical Reasoning module. Highlight trouble spots or confusing words in small groups. After 5 minutes, each table will report out to Amy and Lindsey, who will take notes to inform future content-based PD. Purpose: To FIND trouble areas, not to answer content questions

14 What are the new content and format of the 2014 GED test? What do I need to know about the GED 2014 test content and format? How do I weave the concepts and content of the GED 2014 test into my instruction? Themes of Change Sample problems Apply to current classroom using existing materials

15 FOUR THEMES OF THE CHANGE 1.Mathematical Practices 2.Four Content Areas Number and Operation Sense Algebra Geometry Data Analysis 3.Digital Literacy Use of calculator Item Types 4.Teaching at all levels now Algebraic and Quantitative

16 DIGITAL LITERACY Basic Computer Skills 1.Basic Mouse 2.Word Processing 3.Basic Keyboarding 4.Using the online tools ­ several windows at one time 5.Composing at the keyboard – edit and revise 6.Tab browsing Answer Types 1.Multiple Choice 2.Fill in the blank 3.Hot spots ­ 4.Drag and drop 5.Drop down
